Alexander Heaton's work reaches deep into the imagination, searching for man's most primeval interaction with nature. His paintings attempt to capture that first interaction, and the sense of wonder and spirituality as humanity confronts omnipresence. Alex works from experience, researching and conducting studies in the remotest natural settings. His work seeks to reassert truthful self-reflection as the best mode to self salvation. Through long and meaningful communion with nature his many drawings assert the inherent worth of deep spiritual reflection and recognise the sovereignty of the individual. He often draws upon the mystical experience and noetic connections with Logos or words of the divine. Alex’s work seeks to show that at the level of the individual true healing change can occur to bring about a betterment. He draws upon deep wells of references from Carl Jung, Shamanism, Mythology, Christianity and Buddhism. Alex’s work asserts that there is still great goodness in the western cultural tradition.
